Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A modernised Oliver Twist with Twist being a street graffiti artist, Fagin a Rumanian ‘employing’ young pickpockets, Sikes their overseer, Nancy his love (and Twist’s infatuation), Russian gangsters the main criminals and art theft the centre of the plot. It is nicely done, a fun update of the original.

Synopsis

Twist by Tom Grass, Pure Grass Films Limited

Eighteen-year-old Twist doesn't have much. No money, no home and no family. All he has is his reputation as one of the most daring street artists in London - whose unique skills are matched only by his infamous talent as a climber and freerunner. But when he finds himself on the run from the police, he knows that he could be about to lose the last thing he has left - his freedom. Until he is saved by the mysterious Dodge. When Dodge introduces him to con artist and art 'collector' Cornelius Faginescu, Twist realises that he finally has the chance to be part of something. All that he has to do is put aside his moral objections and learn to steal...
